Ohio Public Benefit Funds for Energy Efficiency

Ohio's restructuring legislation established a Universal Service Fund (USF) for low-income customer assistance programs, including the Electric Partnership Program (EPP), which is designed to improve the electric efficiency of low-income households who participate in PIPP (Percentage of Income Payment Plan) by performing in-home audits, installing appropriate electric baseload and thermal energy efficiency measures and conducting consumer energy education. Gas utilities and landlords also contribute funding to weatherization.

Note: Leveraging reports do not always give a complete statewide picture. Some resources are not reported through leveraging or are under reported.
